#define is only parsed by cpp not by ecpg.

Try 'exec sql define UID_LEN 31;'

No need to work around this as the functionality is already there. Please
see test1.pgc for an example. Yes, I know I should document all this. :-)
Note, that using the exec sql define command is sufficient. You do not need
a #define anymore since ecpg will make the replacement.
